United Kingdom -More workers will receive living wage -October 02, 2015

Starbucks employees will benefit from a 6% pay rise under the National Living Wage - even if they are under 25. The company said all baristas, regardless of age, will earn £7.20 an hour, up from the current base of £6.77, while supervisors will earn £8.72, up from £8.20. Those working in London will also get a premium although the level of this is yet to be announced. Rival Costa reacted and announced a pay hike for its baristas in London. In recent weeks, several retailers have indicated that they will introduce the payment of the living wage. Equally, hundreds of hospital workers at the trust that runs Wolverhampton’s New Cross Hospital and Cannock Chase Hospital will be paid the living wage after trust chiefs backed the move.
